Pricing Misconceptions It is very important to price your property at competitive market value when we finalize the listing agreement.







Buyers and Sellers Determine Value The value of your property is determined by what a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept in today’s market. Buyers make their pricing decision based on comparing your property to other properties SOLD in your area. Historically, your first offer is usually your best.

Preparing Your Home for Sale Did you know well-placed furniture can open up rooms and make them seem larger than they are? Or that opening drapes and blinds and turning on all lights make a room seem bright and cheery?

It's a fact: acquiring the highest market value and elevating your home above others in the same price range often comes down to first impressions. Here are some inexpensive ways to maximize your home's appeal: Exterior • Keep the grass freshly cut. • Remove all yard clutter. • Apply fresh paint to wooden fences. • Paint the front door. • Weed and apply fresh mulch to garden beds. • Clean windows inside and out. • Wash or paint home’s exterior. • Tighten and clean all door handles. • Ensure gutters and downspouts are firmly attached. Interior • Remove excessive wall hangings, furniture and knickknacks (consider a temporary self-storage unit). • Clean or paint walls and ceilings. • Shampoo carpets. • Clean and organize cabinets and closets. • Repair all plumbing leaks, including faucets and drain traps. • Clean all light fixtures. For Showings • Turn on all the lights. • Open drapes in the daytime. • Keep pets secured outdoors. • Play quiet background music. • Light the fireplace (if seasonally appropriate). • Infuse home with a comforting scent like apple spice or vanilla. • Vacate the property while it is being shown.

Closing 101 The closing process finalizes the sale of your home and makes everything official. Also known as settlement, the closing is when you get paid and the buyer receives the deed to your home. Here are a few things to bring to the closing: • House keys • Garage door opener(s) • A picture ID What can you expect? The closing agent will look over the purchase contract and identify what payments are owed and by whom; prepare documents for the closing; conduct the closing; make sure taxes, title searches, real estate commissions and other closing costs are paid; ensure that the buyer's title is recorded; and ensure that you receive any monies due to you. What are your costs? Sellers commonly pay the following at closing:

• Mortgage balance and prepayment penalties, if applicable • Other claims against your property, such as unpaid property taxes • Unpaid special assessments on your property • Document stamps (or taxes) on the deed • Real estate commission • Legal fee or title insurance premium After the closing, make sure you keep the following for tax purposes: • Copies of all closing documents • All home improvement receipts on the home you sold
